New Year’s Six Bowl Odds

Online sports betting is coming to Maryland. This page will be updated with the latest promos and sportsbooks as soon as MD sports betting is live. 

The New Year’s Six bowl games are the most prestigious postseason college football games in the country. Two are the College Football Playoff semifinal games, which pit the top four teams in the nation against one another to decide who will play for the national championship.

The College Football Playoff Selection Committee ultimately decides who plays in all six games, but the teams ranked five to 12 in the country (or those with certain other conference agreements) are generally matched up in the other four New Year’s Six games.

Here’s how to bet on the New Year’s Six bowl games in Maryland, including the latest odds on every game and the best Maryland online sportsbooks to take your New Year’s Six bets.

Bets you can place on bowl games

Betting on bowl games isn’t much different from betting on regular-season college football games, whether you’re betting on a New Year’s Six game, College Football Playoff semifinal, or the national championship game. Here are the main New Year’s Six Bowl odds and wager types you’ll find at Maryland sports betting sites:

  • Moneylines: Pick the winner of a bowl game straight up, and lock in your bet at the currently posted moneyline odds.
  • Point spreads: Pick the winner of a Bowl Game with a point spread bet that the sportsbook sets factoring into the final score. You lock in your bet at the currently posted odds and spread.
  • Totals: Here’s where you bet on whether the total score of a bowl game will land over or under a line that the sportsbook sets. You lock in the currently posted line and odds when you place a totals bet.
  • Props: Bet on specific occurrences happening during the game.

Live betting on bowl games

Along with watching the New Year’s Six games in Maryland, you’ll now be able to live bet on them if you wish. Live betting allows you to place wagers during a game at odds that change based on things like score, time, and momentum.

The lines are mostly updated versions of the same lines you can bet on before the game, but an increased number of quarter and half game lines and in-game props may also be available for bowl games.

The odds will change rapidly to reflect what’s happening in the game. A sportsbook app or website will allow you to keep pace and place a bet if you see college football odds you may like.

How to find college bowl odds

Finding the lines for New Year’s Six bowl games won’t be difficult. You will have to wait for the selection committee to set the matchups, but after that, you’ll find the New Year’s Six Bowl betting odds on Maryland sportsbook websites and apps. Most will have a football or college football tab, and you will find the lines posted there.

Betting on college bowls in Maryland

There are no current restrictions on college football betting in Maryland. However, Maryland is still in the process of setting up its sports betting market, which means it may still put in place certain restrictions on betting on local schools and local games. Other states have prohibited live betting, prop betting, and betting on in-state schools.

Barring any Maryland restrictions, the rules are that you must be of legal betting age and inside state lines to bet on bowl games in the state. Plus, you have to bet with legal Maryland sportsbooks where you have signed up for an account.

  • You can sign up for an account with the sportsbook of your choice through its website or app. A small amount of personal and account information will be necessary.
  • Once you’ve registered for an account, you must deposit money into that account to bet with, using one of the available deposit methods. These will likely include online bank transfers, third-party payment processors, and cash deposits at affiliated Maryland casinos.
  • Finally, you just need to browse through the available bets, find something to wager on, and click on it. That will create a slip you must fill out in order to place a bet.

When do college bowl game lines come out?

The lines for the New Year’s Six bowl games should be available at online sportsbooks in Maryland almost immediately after the matchups are set. That will happen on Sunday, Dec. 5, 2021. Oddsmakers will have anticipated just about every scenario, so they should be ready to release lines immediately
